Canela for Two Seat by Renata Gutierrez and James Rowland

Home > Winners > #64094


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Canela for Two

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Seat

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for Canela for Two came in part from traditional Windsor chairs. Though thoroughly modern and minimal in its appearance, the copper backrest is reminiscent of a more traditional and ubiquitous design and is something that is easily recognised by almost anyone.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Canela for Two was designed to be a visually striking two-seater bench. It has a low back rest which offers a good deal of support and helps maintain an upright sitting position while also maintaining a subtle and non-imposing design.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Canela for two comfortably seats two people while supporting the lower back.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was conceived and realised in Paraty, Brazil 2017.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Canela for Two was handmade from solid hard woods using traditional woodworking methods.The wood in this case is reclaimed Canela Preta salvaged from an old colonial house. Inspired by Kintsukuroi, the Japanese method of using gold to repair broken pottery in order to express its history, copper rings were used to cover the holes where the nails were hammered in over 200 years ago.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 960mm x Depth 450mm x Height 610mm

TAGS:
Knót artesanal, seat, bench, solid wood, copper, handmade

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Research was carried out into various aspects of Canela for Two's design. From a comfort point of view, the position of the backrest was tested to find an ideal height for the average person without being too high to cause discomfort to the spine or too low to offer decent support. A number of options were also considered for how to fill the nail holes, the copper rings with a circular cut of the same wood in its centre was chosen as it provides a subtle yet striking feature which matches the copper supports used in the backrest.

CHALLENGE:
The joinery posed a slight challenge in that it was a requirement to maintain a delicate structure in order to achieve a light and minimal appearance. A combination of finger joints and wedged mortise and tenons were used, these not only provided Canela for Two with a rigid and highly resistant structure but they are also interesting and attractive details in themselves.
